Mug shots of meth users have shown the devastating physical deterioration that the drug causes. Most addicts are seen with sores and spots and some with horrible scratches especially when addicts have scratched their faces after terrifying hallucinations about bugs crawling under their skin.

Many users also portray signs of "meth mouth", showing deterioration of teeth and gums completely decayed due to prolonged drug use.

The website cautions that "Addiction touches nearly every family, ravaging physical and mental health, relationships, and personal finances. Mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, daughters and sons. No one is immune to the frightening long-term impact of hard drug abuse."
